Found this to be a disappointment

Started out holding your attention but then it just started dragging and dragging, by the time you reach page 200 your mind is wandering elsewhere just because it just drags along.

This story is along the lines of the movie, "Walking Tall".

There is a subtle build up of tension as the story progresses as well as a loose mystery of who was involved with what. I kept expecting the crescendo of action to be explosive. By the time the story reaches it denoument, for me it was just "ho-hum".

I continued reading because I was hooked with the steady pacing that seemed to be leading to a huge standoff. After concluding the read, the overall feeling toward this book was just "like it" and I was not blown away by it.

Great book if you like Lee Childs Jack Reacher series you will love this book. Gripping story line and a enthralling cast of characters. I can't wait to read the next book.
